Anyone here play the SF card game by Sabertooth games ? I picked up two packs yesterday . ( Ken and Ryu starter decks. )
It looks like a lot of fun.
I never had the chance to play the Mortal Kombat vs Street Fighter ones. But I don’t care anymore , now that I have a Ryu starter deck ! Hopefully these do well enough , that we’ll see more starter decks in the future !
some good news, they are doing well and there will indeed be more expansions and starter decks… they plan to complete the rest of the SF2 cast in July and then continue with the Alpha characters and ultimately third strike in the more distant future…
as a side note, they got the licenses to KoF2006 and Samurai Shodown 5, with a projected, but not definite, release date in December…
you should pick up some boosters and try to get his Shoryuken and Tatsumaki,. both are great moves…
they have booster boxes @$49.99 and even singles if you don’t want the whole box. They also have common and uncommon sets @$4.99 and $11.99 respectively…

or you can check out the Download section of each game’s section for their particular check lists, which are arranged so that you’ll know what cards are associated with their starters… it also lists the rarity… “D” means starter deck only
Here’s an earlier thread I tried to start on this topic.:arazz: I’ve been enjoying this CCG quite a bit – it’s been getting a decent turnout for Monday night mini-tournaments at a local comic shop here. Very much looking forward to future installments/updates to the game.
EDIT: btw, Gain – thanks for costing me $200. I followed that link you provided to ccgarmory.com and wound up springing for 2 booster boxes each of SCIII and SF. Ordinarily, I’d skip the online retailer and just support the local comics/gaming shop, but the savings ccgarmory.com was offering was just too good to pass up. At $3.29 per booster pack, each box would’ve cost me $78.96 locally – 4 boxes would’ve run me $340.32 (w/NV sales tax), but my bill at ccgarmory.com was just $212.86 (w/USPS Priority). A savings of $127.46 (37.45%). Thanks, man.
The SF artwork is being done by Udon. For the most part, it’s good, but every so often you run across a card that makes you wonder “how the hell did this crap illustration get approved?” The SCIII artwork is being handled by Imaginary Friends Studio, and (IMO) is of a more consistent (and high) quality, overall.
No Juli and Juni yet – so far, Hibiki Dan is the only SFZero series character I can recall seeing on any of the SF cards. Sabertooth Games seems to be focused on getting the original 12 World Warriors established first. I haven’t seen any announcements regarding The New Challengers or Gouki yet, let alone the SFZero and SFIII series.

You might try contacting them to see if either of those locations is hosting any local tournaments (or has a bulletin board where you could tack up a flyer indicating your interest in meeting other players).
i would say that the ken starter is better than the ryu starter because many of the cards that make ryu effective aren’t in his starer deck… still, with his deck exclusive hadoken, yoga mastery and hopefully a random ring veteran, ryu can be just as good, if not better…
ken is very powerful in the game… especially when he uses this card called “Maelstrom Divide”… he can basically draw up to 28 cards and then play MD to kill the opponent in a few turns… there are many ways around this attack
Ryu is great too, especially against ken, since Ryu plays a very effective denial deck… with Yoga Mastery, he can cancel out MD’s effect… and he has great moves too… they just don’t come in his starter
The game is great. I placed 2nd last week at a local tournament (Dhalsim Deck)for it with about 12 person turnout. For the next sets I don’t think they are going in any particular order for characters other than finishing the Super Turbo characters. The only reason I say this is because I’ve heard Ibuki is in the next set along with Akuma. Just give me Urien and I’ll be happy.
